  1. It’s amazing. We did a garden one year with zero chemicals. We just plowed, planted the seeds in dirt, weeded/tilled and watered. You wouldn’t believe the difference in the way food tastes when it’s all natural. Luckily we live on a farm and have plenty of natural fertilizer! You know exactly where you food came from, when and what was put on it. I love having my own garden. Plus it’s cheaper! No fertilizer or pesticides to purchase and growing your own costs much less than buying in a store.
